Types of Drivers
I have felt panic driving ever since the first time I drove in my life. One time, when I was driving, I arrived at the traffic signal and it changed to red, as a consequence, I ran into the intersection. I panicked and hit the gas instead of the brakes. When I was young, I had no experience driving. I have found that the way a person drives changes with age. Therefore, I believe there are three types of drivers: young adults age 16 to 20 years old, middle-aged adults age 20 to 65 years old, and elderly adults age 65 and older.
First, between the ages of 16-20 years old, teenage drivers lack driving experience. They like speed because they believe they are very good drivers, but they do not think that in case of an accident ...view middle of the document...
They want to show that they are cool and grown up by talking, but they are not paying attention to the road because they are focusing on the conversation and jokes with their friends.
Between the ages of 20 to 65 years old, middle age drivers drive with confidence because they have been driving for a longer time. They like to follow the law and pay attention to the other drivers. They have good reflexes because they drive with caution. They do not like to waste money on tickets, so they are careful when they drive. As age increases, older drivers generally become more conservative on the road.
The elderly adults age 65 and older, they are drivers that get easier into accidents more easily as their driving abilities change with age. They might have eye condition that can interfere with their ability to drive. Also, their reflexes are slower. Therefore, it is very difficult for them to react quickly if they have to avoid accident. Older drivers sometimes take medications that can influence in their ability to drive by making them drowsy or distracted. However, this is not always the case. They are some elderly drivers that instead are very good drivers.
In conclusion, there are three different types or drivers: young adult drivers, middle age drivers and elderly drivers. The problem with young drivers is distraction and lack of experience. The advantage of middle age drivers is the experience that they have on the road. The difficulty for elderly drivers is that with age their reflexes are slower. However, in my opinion, it is not important what type of driver you are. The important thing is to drive with awareness, respect and responsibility because it is your life and the lives of others that are in danger. Therefore, we must drive with consciousness of our capabilities.
